• "Fontana" Soave DOC 2020

      “Fontana” Soave DOC 2020

      Balanced bouquet of citrus fruits and floral aromas, fresh and tasty on the palate. A distinctly accessible Soave with a lot of grace at a small price. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Starts out with some candied pineapple and apple on the nose, but then it broadens out on the medium-bodied palate into more peachy and ripe-pineapple character. There's a lightly savory, almost wild-garlic note that pervades the wine, which I find very attractive. But the end is all pure, persistent fruit. Keeps you interested from start to finish."

      “Vigna Monte Ceriani” Soave DOC 2019

      Pale yellow, crystalline colour. Harmonious aroma of citrus fruits, especially grapefruit. Powerful on the palate, fresh, long lasting and mineral reverberation accompanied by a wonderful almond/pepper note. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A lemony fruit base, but it's the hints of mimosa, pungent earth and almond that really attract. The same character on the palate, which is medium-bodied and shows a touch of tannin-like firmness, carrying a tight bead of citrusy flavor into the long finish. Serious Soave here that pricks all the senses." James Suckling

      Extremely warm, velvety and typical of the variety, the delicately spicy Monti Garbi presents itself with the aromas of ripe red fruits and beautiful balance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining ruby garnet. In the nose elegant spice of cloves, pepper, then ripe Amarena cherries and some violets. Opens very soft and creamy on the palate, polished in the tannin, pulls itself comfortably and uncomplicated over the tongue, juicy and slightly salty in the finish." Falstaff

      "Very intense aromas and flavors of sweet berries, together with notes of coffee, licorice, scorched orange peel and a hint of toffee. Medium-to full-bodied and very flavorful, as the nose predicted, with fine tannins and an almost tangy fruit and spice finish. Feels a little wild, but grabs your attention from start to finish."

    • "Vecchie Vigne" Soave DOC 2018

      “Vecchie Vigne” Soave DOC 2018

      Wonderfully complex Soave from vines over 20 years old. Sparkling light yellow with green reflections. In the restrained reductive bouquet of bitter almond, flint, jam of fruits with white and yellow flesh, dried fruits and pastries. The palate is dry, warm and soft, fresh, spicy and slightly astringent, with a full, balanced body. With increasing aeration, it reveals its great complexity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense aromas and flavors of red peach, almond paste and bright, floral notes. Medium-to full-bodied with a dense core of peachy fruit and a long, silky finish that features the more savory, almond and floral elements. Very intense, but never too much. Delicious Soave that's so easy to drink." James Suckling

      "Better known for its range of Valpolicella and Amarone, Tenuta Sant'Antonio also has a property planted to Garganega on the stony calcareous soils of Monte di Colognole, on the western edge of the DOC zone. Vecchie Vigne is a low-yield, barrique-aged, 5,000-bottle selection. The 2018 has attractive citrus and white blossom notes next to the oak on the nose, and a solid palate with chunky concentration and good ageing prospects." Decanter

      Amarone Selezione Antonio Castagnedi delivers high quality for its price every year: diverse aromas of violets, graphite, black cherries and minerals and a lively, structured, down-to-earth style. This richness and depth make it the perfect companion to winter cuisine. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep dark garnet. Lush berry nose of wild berries, lush raspberry, a hint of strawberry candy and young rose petal. Balanced and polished on the palate, showing savory fruit, comforting flow, with juicy tension and a long finish." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Antonio Castagnedi balances dark ripe fruits, sweet spices and rich mocha with savory herbs and violet florals. It’s a silky and energetic effort with cooling acids and minerals, coloring within the lines of refinement while still satiating the senses with masses of ripe black cherries. A bit of heat pokes out through on the finish, yet this is forgivable in my book, as the Antonio Castagnedi tapers off fresh to inner violet florals and a bitter twang of wild berries." Vinous

Fruity and full-bodied, yet velvety and very sophisticated in its character - an austere, elegant Amarone, whose terrificfinish is accompanied by noble tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aged three years in tonneaux and produced with a minimum of added sulphur - and that's an achievement in Amarone: clean-bodied nose, warm-scented black cherries, herbs and dark chocolate; pithy construction with robust, crisp tannins, shows character through to the final." Vinum

      "This is quite an unusual Amarone with plenty of black pepper, blackberry bush and eucalyptus, punctuating an otherwise blackberry-focused nose. peppery and spicy. Full-bodied, open-knit and fruit-forward. Juicy on the finish." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Campo dei Gigli is youthfully inward and understated with a display of mineral-tinged blackberries, dried flowers and hints of animal musk. The textures are silky, ushering in a balanced mix of savory red fruits, wild herbs and inner florals that amass toward the close. Cooling acids linger, adding freshness as notes of hard red candies and a hint of licorice slowly taper off." Vinous

Cooling acids linger, adding freshness as notes of hard red candies and a hint of licorice slowly taper off." Vinous

      "Very potent aromas of blackcurrants and toasted oak with hints of eucalyptus and black-cherry liqueur, following through to a full palate with firm tannins that drive the fruit on through the long finish. There's a kind of raw, almost rough-and-ready character to this that's a bit hard work now. Will even out with bottle age. One for the cellar." James Suckling

    About the winemakersSant'AntonioVeneto
    Sant'Antonio

    Four brothers and one passion: the passion of Armando, Massimo, Paolo and Tiziano Castagnedi for wine has its origin in the paternal vineyards of San Zeno di Colognola ai Colli, an area of Valpolicella from which the most famous Veronese wines Amarone, Valpolicella and Soave come. In 1989, the temporary cooperatives of the region's advisory oenologists bought thirty hectares of land in the Mezzane area, which, together with the vineyards acquired by father Antonio, became the property of Tenuta Sant'Antonio grew to fifty hectares. The decision of the quartet of winegrowers to plant more vines in addition to the existing vines in the unjustly long neglected east of the classic Valpolicella area and to build a new wine cellar in Monti Garbi required a lot of courage and great entrepreneurial spirit. Today, the Castagnedi brothers are richly rewarded for their dedication and courage: in the few years of their activity as producers with their own label, the pure wines of the Tenuta Sant'Antonio already received many awards.

    The estate is situated in the hills between the valleys of Illasi and Mezzane. From 120 metres above sea level, the vineyards rise gently to 320 metres. The microclimate is ideal and benefits from the mild influence of Lake Garda. The soils are compact and very calcareous. The red grapes are distributed among the varieties Corvinone, Corvina, Rondinella and Cabernet Sauvignon. The white fruits are mainly Garganega, Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay.

    One of the iron rules of the Veneto winery, which is very environmentally friendly and respects both tradition and current market needs, is to cultivate the vines shoot by shoot and carefully select the grapes by hand. The form of education chosen was the old Tendone education, a variant of the pergola system, and the Guyot system most commonly used today. In the parcels of Tenuta Sant'Antonio is rarely fertilized organically. Interventions with microelements are only carried out if necessary. Pest control treatments are reduced to what is absolutely necessary. According to the management of the estate, the manufacturing process focuses on the best possible result - even if this should sometimes be at the expense of the production quantity. The new wine cellar was designed according to architectural principles, combining aesthetic aspects with precise rationality. Spacious rooms make it possible to extend the refinement times for the wines. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The objectives were clear from the outset: high density on poor soils, no more than one label per vineyard, uncompromising quality at every stage of production and the development of the character of each wine. No wonder, then, that the winery has recently secured a place among the highlights of the region."Gambero Rosso
